I have a serious question. I'm not being sarcastic. And I'm not being flippant.
But, again - seriously - how many years does it take to conclude that it's not working with Kessel and Phaneuf as the focal points of your team?
I like Phil Kessel and I like Dion Phaneuf. I think both are excellent NHL players that would excel on good team. Just imagine Phaneuf on the Rangers. Or Kessel with the Kings. Wow, is what I think.
However, at some point does management not have to look at this situation and conclude it's not working with them as focal points? How long does it take to come to the conclusion that they both would be better off in support roles? And what happens when management does reach that conclusion? Is that when a full rebuild begins?
